In recent years, we have been witnessing a global awakening to a call for a more intentional focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, & justice (DEIJ). In the wake of the outcries for racial justice which reverberated around the world, many institutions indicated an intent to become places where those within their care can thrive with all aspects of their identity celebrated. However, international education continues to face significant challenges in creating lasting systemic change.

Middle Leaders are often at the forefront of observing & experiencing the myriad of inequities that exist, such as the lack of affirmation of certain student identities within the school culture & curriculum, staffing barriers relative to educator backgrounds, & more. How might we equip ourselves & our institutions to break through these challenges? Join this course to explore these themes & co-create actions that lead to breakthroughs which will enable yourself, your institutions, & the international education community to flourish.

Key questions

  • What systemic inequities do our fears protect and how can we interrupt them?
  • How do we support those within our care to experience breakthroughs in order to flourish?
  • How might we break through the systemic barriers to our own growth as middle leaders?
  • What can we do as middle leaders to collectively inspire tangible change towards diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice within the international school ecosystem?
